Illustration created with gouache, glass glitter, sequins, and satin sealer.
Continuing my latest obsession with painting on bags. It’s wonderful having friends who are willing to hand over their bags for me to experiment on!

Moving to a new city means searching for new go-to’s for a plethora of things. A new hair stylist, a new wine shop, a coffee shop that pulls the perfect espresso, and for me, a new framer!
Framers are tricky. You want a framer that not only provides incredible quality to last generations, but someone who has a creative eye and understands your style. A frame can make or break a piece of art.
My friend, Courtney, introduced me to J. Pocker soon after I moved to New York City last year. I set up a meeting with Robyn, the granddaughter of J. Pocker himself, where she filled me in on the family history behind their business (which I find fascinating). Robyn has continued to keep her family tradition of bespoke framing alive and thriving. Also, their Upper East Side shop is conveniently located across the street from the Society of Illustrators- seems only fitting!
New York go-to framer, check!
Being home in Georgia, I’ve had some time and space to clear my mind. I’ve been thinking about my shadow dancers quite a bit, and they’ve been showing up everywhere I look…
On the garden path…
In the shadows…
At the bottom of my coffee cup…
…and in my breakfast.
Where will they show up next?
